Are you a Redditor who has finally decided to add a post on Reddit but is confused as to how it is done? Fear not, This article will show you how to do that!
Before trying to add a post on Reddit, you need to make sure that you have joined the community, also referred to as ‘subreddit’ in which you wish to post. If not, Reddit will not let you post on that community. However, you can also post on your own profile, this is similar to how you post on Instagram. Your followers or people who visit your page can see the post which you have posted on your profile. Now, let's jump in and learn how to add a post on Reddit.
How To Post On Reddit Mobile (2022)
6 Easy Steps to Add a Post on Reddit
Step-1 Open Reddit: First, launch the Reddit app on your device. For that, download the app from Google Play Store (for Android) or App Store (for iPhone). Once the app becomes visible on your device, click on the Reddit app icon. This action will lead you to your Reddit profile.
Step-2 Tap on the 'Plus' Icon: Now, tap on the 'Plus' Icon which will be visible to you at the bottom of the page. This icon can be seen in the middle of all the other icons.
Step-3 Select the Location of Your Post: Next, select the option as to where you want to post.
This can be either on your own page or in a community. If you wish to post on your profile, choose the ‘My Profile’ option.
If you want to post in a community that you are in, select any community that you've joined.
Step-4 Select Your Type of Post: Then, select the appropriate category of the post from the given options, namely 'Image', 'Video', 'Text', 'Link', and 'Poll'.
Step-5 Provide Title and Tap on Next: Once you have selected the type of the post, proceed to give a suitable title on the title column. Then, tap on the 'Next' button given in the Upper-Right corner.
Step-6 If Required, Select “NSFW” or "Spoiler": Lastly, see if your post is offensive/ inappropriate/ 18+ or is a spoiler.
Select the option “NSFW” if the post is not suitable for work.
Choose the option “Spoiler” if the post has an important plot development which if previously seen, may lessen the element of surprise or suspense for anyone.
Select nothing if these options are not applicable to your post.
Finally, tap on the ‘Post’ button placed on the Upper-Right corner.

Posting too much or breaking subreddit rules will result in a ban from that subreddit or from the site itself.
